|Class will resume next year.
Peterson Duration: 4
Weeks Cost: US$195
This is our first ever photography class devoted exclusively to the world of close-up photography. Your instructor for this course, Bryan F Peterson, will take every student on an adventure filled eye-popping journey into the world of CLOSE-UP photography with
and without a macro lens! This class will quickly debunk the myth that close-up photography is solely about flowers, bees and butterflies.
Of course no close-up photography class would be complete without exploring these
topics, but this course goes way beyond these common subjects and exposes you
to many other close-up subjects that will have you soon exclaiming, "Of course!
Why didn't I think of that?"
Based in part on Bryan's close-up book, Understanding
Close-up Photography, (available everywhere books are sold) this class explores the close-up and intimate vision found
not only with the macro lenses, but also with the wide-angle lenses, including
the fish-eye as well as the telephoto and of course the plethora of close-up/macro
accessories that one has at their disposal to aid in getting close to the
subject; extension tubes, close-up filters, reversing rings, focusing rails,
bellows and even ring flashes. Additionally you will discover a real cheap
in home set-up for making shadow-less portraits of any subject you may wish
to shoot close-up as well as make the discovery that your own home is a virtual
gold mine for 'mining' truly compelling photographs. This 4-week course is
loaded with an extreme amount of close-up photography tips and techniques.
This course will not only change your mind about WHAT subjects make a great close-up opportunity but it will also change your style and approach to picture making in general as you soon realize just how many intimate and close encounters await you at every turn-no matter what lenses you may have in your bag.
A digital or film camera with full manual exposure mode. Basic macro gear requried e.g. ext tubes and/or Close-up FIlters and/or 60mm, 100mm, 105mm, 180mm or 200mm Macro lens.
